Slackware 9.1: Networking and dorm ethernet access
Ok, I'm not new to Linux, but all network stuff I have ever done has been centralized around a small LAN at home. We finally have ethernet access in the dorms this year (It's my junior year - I'm one of the guys who was stuck pulling fiber, wiring patch panels, doing network drops, and pouring concrete thanks to my internship with computer services... anyway). The problem is, I can't seem to get out past the gateway - I am to the point where I can ping the gateway and get a response, but I can't get anything outside that (IE Internet access).
I haven't asked for any info from CS regarding setting up - I just ran ipconfig on my win2k box, copied down the domain, gateway, my static IP, and subnet mask, and plugged all the info using netconfig.
Any ideas? I actually have the same problem with my FreeBSD install IIRC - I haven't been working with it much right now because that is for my server work and I want to get my Linux desktop install set up so I can stop relying on Windows 2k (which is all fine and dandy, but I prefer Linux for desktop work).
